Here's strip 115 of Dude in Distress, and Clark continues to annoy his downstairs neighbor.

Just her, and a bright unidentified fuzzy object. A weirdly distorted view of the moon? An approaching villain? We'll never know... except maybe next week :D

Can't be the moon unless some villain turned its dark side transparent....

I am feeling like Neil deGrass Tyson. When he saw the night sky in Titanic when the ship was sinking, he was concerned that the stars were in the wrong places for that time of year for the north Atlantic.

Me, I am thinking the moon is at the wrong angle. The side of the moon that it is lit directly faces the sun. That high of an angle would indicate that Clark and company are in Alaska or the Yukon, maybe Finland. If you were somewhere in the lower 48 states, you would have to facing south and it is just before dawn. Maybe they are in Argentina just after sunset, looking north.

Oh, and stars don't shine through the moon, just because that part is not lit. Maybe you have three airplanes flying way too close.

Looking at it again, it now looks like the moon to me, when disregarding the three airplanes/satellites-on-fire/someone-turned-the-dark-transparent. And that it is somehow very blurred while the stars are not. Earlier I did not catch the purple-ish cloud in front of it (too dim screen in too bright environment), thus I was more confused. And I am from Sweden, so I guess they are pretty far north.

Just to confirm: it's the moon (check the previous strip with Femme flying for clarification). Last episode had a full moon, and this is about a week later; thus it's in a last quarter phase (a bit of waning gibbous since it's been a bit shy of a week from full moon).

As for the stars and purple sky--just stylistic choices to add a bit of fairy tale flair. The moon's dark-side "transparency" is my fault-- and now I can't un-notice it. I'll likely fix that in the next day or two.

Okay. Moon in this strip and the previous strip has been corrected: The dark side is now in shadow instead of transparent.

Will we learn the identity of Clark's downstairs neighbor?

Some old guy named Sam Lane? Hmm, Sam Heign? ;)
